Contact the Elderly is a national charity dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation amongst older people. This is achieved by organising monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties, for small groups aged seventy five and over, and volunteers.

Popularity
Contact the Elderly groups can be found in all areas of the United Kingdom.

Location
Contact the Elderly parties take place in volunteer hosts, homes.

Age
All ages can join Contact the Elderly as a volunteer. Senior members must be seventy five and over.

Ability
Volunteers should enjoy listening, be able to chat easily with older people and have a good sense of humour. volunteer drivers must be safe and responsible drivers.

Description
Each older person is collected from their home by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home for the afternoon. The group is welcomed by a different host each month, but the drivers remain the same which means that over the months and years, acquaintances turn into friends and loneliness is replaced by companionship.

Dedication
`Contact the Elderly` tea parties are a real lifeline of friendship for the older members who have little or no contact with any family or friends. The parties bring people of all ages together, developing fulfilling friendships and support networks, and give everyone involved something to look forward to each month.
